One Stroke Flowers over Color Club Get a Clue

I decided that Color Club Get a Clue would provide a lovely background for my first one stroke flower attempt. I have seen lots of tutorials on the technique, but have been hesitating to actually try it. Turns out is it not as scary as one might have imagined. I used white and periwinkle blue acrylic paint along with a flat angled brush to create the flowers...


The first attempt is a basic one, but now that the ice is broken I will hopefully be playing around with one stroke flowers a lot more...



I would love to know what you think of this! Have you tried the one stroke technique before?

Thanks for looking!

  7. I haven't actually seen this technique before, but it is absolutely gorgeous! The colors you chose are so pretty and delicate. Somehow I can just picture this with bright colors and a big hibiscus style/anthers angling out from the left side... I'd love to see that!
